Saudi Arabia’s famed music entertainment company, MDLBEAST, stormed its way into the regional music scene with their now renowned festival, Soundstorm, in 2019. Over the last four years, the entertainment gurus have been aggressively working towards revolutionising the industry in the Kingdom, effectively putting it on the map at an accelerating rate, with constant events, conferences, and releases alongside their frequent endeavors into new musical projects. 


Sandstorm pulls together a wild collection of performers, creatives, and partygoers from all over the globe, congregating for three days of boundary-pushing entertainment. True to their mission of ‘amplifying the unseen’, MDLBEAST is going even bigger than ever before for this year’s festival, by bringing a superstar lineup of the likes of which the region has never seen before. 


Over the course of three days, between December 1st and December 3rd, Riyadh’s Banban will stand witness to Saudi’s most unfathomably incredible series of live performances. Soundstorm’s lineup needs no introduction, seeing as it includes Bruno Mars, DJ Khaled Post Malone, Wizkid, Marshmello, Carl Cox, Solomun, DJ Snake, and David Guetta.


Round two of Soundstorm’s mega line-up arrives with globally acclaimed artists such as Chet Faker, FKJ, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Tiesto and Michael Kiwanuka, all amongst the sea of talent flooding MDL Beast’s most diverse line-up to date. Leading DJs Eric Prydz, Ricardo Villalobos, Hot Since 82 are also joining returning spinners Jamie Jones, Zedd, Hardwell and Steve Aoki. 


Ever the champions of emerging talent, MDLBEAST will also bring to their decks – along with this world-famous lineup of veteran artists - a group of Saudi female DJs, such as Biirdperson, DJ Cosmicat, Dorar, Kayan and Solskin. Dish Dash, Vinylmode, and regional sensation, DJ Aseel, will be joining the lineup as well, with many more exciting names to be announced soon. 


To accommodate this (frankly absurd) list of incredible performers, this year’s edition of Soundstorm is double the size of any of its previous versions, with the food, seating, and parking spaces to match. The notion is mindboggling, because last year’s attendees surpassed 730,000, and so the thought of a festival double the size, happening in the region, would’ve been an impossible dream not five years ago. This moment is a defining one in Saudi’s cultural history.


Soundstorm tickets are now available at mdlbeast.com with four tiers available, general admission, premium, VIB, and VIB Box.
